“If you have more oxygen going to your muscles, that’s more energy and that makes you a better athlete,” said Dr. Andrew McCullough, a sexual health expert at the New York University School of Medicine. “Even if it only gives you a 10 percent increase, in peak athletes that is enough to win.”

Watermelon’s Viagra Effect

July 2, 2008

Watermelon contains an amino acid that increases blood flow by producing Nitric Oxide. This amino acid called citrulline is being used as a supplement for increasing blood flow and lowering blood pressure. Bodybuilders feel “the pump” when they take citrulline.

ScienceDaily (July 1, 2008) — A cold slice of watermelon has long been a Fourth of July holiday staple. But according to recent studies, the juicy fruit may be better suited for Valentine’s Day. That’s because scientists say watermelon has ingredients that deliver Viagra-like effects to the body’s blood vessels and may even increase libido.
